In 2013, Binge Eating Disorder was officially recognized as its own category of an eating disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 (DSM-V). The majority of people with BED are of larger body size. It is commonly believed that effective treatment for BED includes weight loss. Yet weight-loss diets are at the root of the disorder for many people. Join us for this webinar to learn more about how healthcare professionals can address weight management in this population by breaking the binge eating cycle without causing harm. Register today!
